Hi!! Adobe fonts are taking too long time to be installed! I guess this is an old issue, I used to have this same problem when this service was called as "Type Kit". I can see the problem continues, unfortunelly. My internet connection is Ok.

I have this problem as well. Bit of a joke when you pay a subscription service fee. It literally takes ages for the font to appear in Illustrator. This never used to be an issue and is adding time onto my days.

It is indeed VERY slow, and @liz_g 's reply doesn't address the matter at all.

This is a constant issue among many people. Maybe Adobe should look into it instead of making us do the leg work. Clearly a universal problem!

So expect us to do all this anytime we activate fonts?

Likewise in my case. Activating a single font can take up to 10 minutes or more and sometimes doesn't work at all (Adobe Illustrator 2020).

Same! I've had this issue for a few years now. It's beyond annoying.

Seriously just googled this to see if this is the norm. Appears so. 😞
Sitting in InDesign now hoping it works, about to try and go through the website in hopes it moves quicker to register.

Is there a way to speed up the installment of Adobe Typekit fonts? I am waiting for minutes and depending on the font, it goes quicker, doesnt install at all or takes restarts... What is going on here?

I don't know why this happens. I just know there's no excuse for it.

Same here. Takes forever to download a tiny font file. Adobe sure knows how "fix" things that weren't broken. This is very detrimental to the workflow and lets be honest....I want an "activate all" button to click before i go to bed so I NEVER have to wait again.

 

You're messing up, ADOBE
